It has been a slow yet certainly not uneventful year in the Pentax world— most notably, in terms of product releases, the D FA* 50mm F1.4 lens took center stage for its stellar optical performance and exceptional value. The Pentax K-1 II release was accompanied by a first-of-its-kind hardware upgrade service for existing K-1 owners. Moreover, Ricoh rolled out a host of updates on the software front, including a SDK for controlling the most recent camera models, significant firmware enhancements for the Theta V, and improvements to the tethering performance of current DSLRs. At the same time, we said farewell to the Pentax K-1, K-3 II, and K-S2 while getting a teaser that a GR III (and likely more) would soon be released in time for the 100th anniversary of Pentax next year.
Stay tuned for two more posts in the coming weeks: a look at the most popular Pentax gear of 2018, and an in-depth look at the year in review.
If you haven't already, be sure to check out our December "Lights" photo contest, which ends in one week.
Check the compatibility of any lens with your DSLR
If you're a Pentax shooter, you probably already know that most K-mount lenses work with most digital K-mount cameras. One of the Pentax system's key strengths is indeed exceptional backwards-compatibility, even with the very first Pentax lenses ever made.
However, there are some camera-lens combinations which carry specific prerequisites in order to function properly. Others are outright incompatible, or suffer from limitations. To help you verify that a lens will work with your camera, we're happy to officially unveil our new lens compatibility checker!
